LOVE ETERNAL AT THE LAVA LOUNGE
Apr 07, 2005
By Mark C. Anderson
Plenty of bands do the dreadlock and rasta thing convincingly enough to qualify themselves as a reggae band. Extremely rare along this sound spectrum is a group like Love Eternal, so deeply committed to the redemptive and healing power of devotional reggae that describing their butt-length natties and slyly smiling eyes is a disservice. These five artists exist to commune and create and can prove it, with both their lifestyle—they live together under the redwoods in Santa Cruz raising their kids and crafting their music as a group—and their music. The magnetically interwoven lyrics of Shawna and Jahred Namaste move with such an airy reverence for subjects like giving, creation and love that listeners can’t help but feel hopeful; meanwhile, Kris “Tafari” Smith amplifies their uplifting energy with fluid rhythms that make movement irresistible.
9:30pm/doors open; 10:30pm/show. Lava Lounge inside Club Octane, 321D Alvarado St., Monterey. Free. 646-9244 or www.loveeternal.org.

“Blessed blessed creation...” Homegrown from the forest and ocean areas of Santa Cruz, CA comes a band ripe and ready to share their blessings. The band Love Eternal manifests the etherial while floating roots-reggae past your head. What is that resonating soft warm jasmine breeze swirling through your dreads? It may just be the melodic vibrations of Love Eternal and their transcendent album “Family.” The melodies and vocals on the first track “Love Jah” invokes Irie melting effects on your being. Each song on their CD is like a Jamaican lullaby tapping into your spirit, elevating your soul toward unlimited Godly potential.

“Made for the great outdoors and to be played so the clouds can hear it”

Love Eternal with psychedelic guitars in tow and lovely breathy vocals, is a unique band singing out unified spirit. With music as their guiding tool, they spread more love around than hate exists on the Earth. Their reggae style is earthy and organic. Sometimes it makes you want to sit back and reflect and other times get up and jump in euphoria. Their album’s bouncy reggae style is a sunny day pleasure. Made for the great outdoors and to be played so the clouds can hear it, “Family” offers Caribbean styles mixed with traditional festival originals from the Islands. Teaching the word of Truth, Love Eternal is a harmonic, mellow, groovy group of singers and musicians, that can make a night under the stars magical.

Bio

Through a river of cosmic circumstances rises homegrown roots reggae band, Love Eternal. They united as musicians as well as family three years ago near the ocean of Santa Cruz, CA with a common aspiration in mind - developing and producing "some of the most beautiful, conscious music, your likely to hear" (~Damon Orion Goodtimes Newspaper) They live, create music, and raise their children together under a Redwood canopy as a communal family, which lends to their tightly woven musicianship.

Love Eternal's unique blend of roots reggae intertwines the pulsing beats of traditional reggae drumkit with west african and niyabinghi drumming, Paridigm shifting harmonies and lyrics, thumpin rhythmic bass, scratchin guitar, and the unexpected melodies of electric and accoustic mandolins, all tide up with the upbeat groove of pure roots reggae.
As life-long musicians dedicated to their love and passion for the arts, Love Eternal draws inspiration from an eclectic mix of everything from Bob Marley, Israel Vibration, the Gladiators and other classic roots reggae of the 60s and 70s -- to Jam Bands like Grateful Dead, and Santana, and even soul music and gospel . The band channels these influences into a distinctive sound all their own which keeps reggae fans as well as a more universal audience wanting more.

In 2003, Love Eternal recorded their debut album, Family to high praise. The melodies and vocals on the first track "Love Jah" invoke irie melting effects on your being...like a Jamaican lullaby tapping into
your spirit, elevating your soul. With their much-anticipated second album, Creation, just released, Love Eternal is planning a CD release tour for fall 2005. Check out Creation and visit www.loveeternal.org
